Surgeon Walks in Blizzard for Three Hours to Perform Surgery

When a historical snowstorm descended upon Scotland, the city of Glasgow was brought to a standstill. Whatever the weather, surgeon, Lindsey Chisolm, knew she had to get to the hospital. A patient was waiting for her to perform crucial colon cancer surgery.

Realizing that driving was simply out of the question, Dr. Chisolm piled on the winter gear and set out on foot for the 8-mile journey. Three hours later, she arrived at the hospital to a staff that was absolutely stunned to see her.

“I had the right equipment. I knew there was no avalanche risk. I was not going to get lost, and there were places I could stop on the way if the weather did become absolutely terrible, so I just didn’t think anything of it,” she said.
